1- Introduction:

 
Establishing research centers and specialized laboratories are necessary factors in order to ascertain one of the most important academic prophecies, that is, to internalize research. Through the development of the Nanoptronics Research Center, Iran University of Science and Technology has dedicated a welcoming atmosphere for researchers and students interested in the field of Nanoptronics.  This center is significant in conducting research, managing semi-industrial and industrial projects, creating appropriate opportunities for conducting M.Sc and Ph.D. student projects and researches, educating experts necessary for various centers and industries, and so forth. Immigration of scientists and educated people from Iran to western countries is not only due to economic reasons, but also due to under equipped and under developed laboratories.  Providing scientific and academic advances can highly increase their return. 
The Nanoptronics research center can meet scientific and human development demands, prospects of medium-term and long-term plans, and specialize in electronic-related sciences. The center has been created as a result of the Nanoptronics sub-major (branch of study) in the Electronics faculty of Iran University of Science and Technology, and the necessity to develop related laboratories. According to the guidelines mentioned, research priorities and our country’s requirements, this center was established in 2007 with the following laboratories:

1. Nanoelectronic Lab.
2. Optoelectronic Lab.
3. Quatronics Lab.

1. Nanoelectronic laboratory: 
One of the most important aspects of nanotechnology is its multi-disciplinary aspect. The current training program structure in most universities has some shortcomings for nanotechnology experts. Therefore training programs need to be optimized. The factors by which lead the way toward long-term goals of nanotechnology are being provided in a time period of less than 20 years, and include: establishing nanotechnology research centers, applied laboratories, and multi-disciplinary research programs and groups in universities.
Hundreds of billions of dollars investments in the field of nanotechnology by developed countries like Japan and America indicates nanotechnology’s universal importance. In Iran there is a great deal of scientific potential in order to conduct nanoelectronic researches. As a matter of fact, published articles in authoritative international journals and successful research projects show that Iran has had great success in this area, leaving a minor distance between Iran and developed countries in this field, making competition all the more possible.
Research contexts in this laboratory include studying quantum transmission, single-electron devices, applying nanoparticles to fabrication of photodetectors with ZnO and molecular nanoelectronic. It has been predicted that by means of equipping the laboratory in the future, it will be possible to conduct various  experiments with tools, including the electronic microscope to measure atomic dimensions and molecular ordering, identifying three-dimensional features and nanoelectronic device surface, controlling molecular ordering and fabrication of photodetectors and so on.

2. Optoelectronic laboratory:

Measurement systems and accurate optical instruments are important requirements of different industries particularly those related to semiconductor device fabrication, optical lithography and mask production. In optical lithography processes, it is necessary to take care of nanometric accuracies in measuring mobility of different axes. Moreover, other practical instances of optical measurement equipments include calibration of laboratory and industrial equipments, accurate cutting, robotic systems, surface roughness measurement, and geological sciences and gravity measurement. Obtaining accurate measurement systems are ever more necessary for the planning and establishing of an applied laboratory concerning measurement equipments and devices and accurate instruments.
Important applications of optical electronics, Laser and Optic, under our study include rangefinding and speedometer, aiming through laser, leader and tracker electro optic systems, electro optic discovery and detector systems and more.

3. Quatronics laboratory:

One of the basic applications of spintronics is quantum communication, the goal of which is to transfer quantum states from one point to the other. Because this is a new branch of the sciences, it is possible to achieve progress and innovation along with developed countries by attending and providing necessary facilities to researchers. This technology is critical to communication safety and quantum communication safety, which will be possible in the near future.  Using quantum communication in national sensitive applications will help these sections greatly.
Subjects like production of entangled photons, transferring them to receiver and transmitter stations, investigation of environmental effects on entangled photon pairs, design and fabrication parametric reducer convertors, quantum encoding, quantum key distribution, designing and testing quantum gates, entanglement exchange and distillation, investigation of optical fiber effects on entangled photon pairs, and processing quantum information and so on can be performed in this lab.
